How To Keep Your Kids Mouths Healthy This Holiday Season

7

The holiday season is approaching and as the excitement of Christmas morning draws nearer, the anticipation may be affecting your children in a range of different ways. But with a normal routine in place and a number of tips and tricks to limit the damage done to their teeth, it is not impossible to keep their teeth ad gums healthy as we head into the new year. To help you out, we will be providing you with some of the tips and tricks that we have learnt to keep your children’s teeth healthy over the Christmas holidays.

Stick To Your Normal Schedule

When it comes to sleep and other elements of your child’s routine, you tend to keep to the same schedule and why should oral health be any different. By sticking to the same routine of brushing in the morning as well as in the evening before bed, you are keeping them to a routine regardless of what day it is or any of the excitement that is happening that day.

This will not only help to keep the teeth clean, but it will prevent an unexpected visit to a North Finchley dentist or your local practice for toothache and other common issues. By sticking to a routine and monitoring them closely, you can be sure that they are cleaning all the sugar away from their teeth and gums.

Switch Sugar For Healthy Snacks

Healthy snacks are often the last thing on your child’s mind during the school holidays, but by using snacks such as carrots and hummus to break the day up, you can keep the teeth and gums healthy all whilst maintaining a healthy diet in the long term. Though it is important to allow your children sugar at this time, providing a vegetable platter rather than sweets is often a nice change and helps to prevent sugar from sticking to the teeth.

Reward The Brushing Of Teeth

Another way that you can keep your children’s mouth healthy is to reward your child when they brush properly. Whether this is with a little present as part of advent or an extra Christmas present on Christmas day, this can help to encourage them to brush as they are then walking toward something, this is a tactic that will also work with brothers and sisters and will encourage everyone to brush during the Christmas holidays. 

Add Vegetables To Their Christmas Dinner

The final way that you can keep your children’s teeth healthy during the holidays is by adding vegetables into their Christmas dinner. Vegetables such as carrots, broccoli and cauliflower can all remove sugars from the teeth whilst providing the vitamins and nutrients that are needed in a balanced diet. Additionally, supplying a cheese board at the end of the meal will help to clean the teeth and strengthen the enamel around the tooth thus prevent erosion or sugars from sticking to the surface of the tooth.

As the holiday season draws nearer, it is more important than ever to care for your teeth and lead by example to ensure that your little ones are not to affected by their lack of a normal routine. Whether you provide then with more veg in the dinner or you limit the number of sweets entirely, this will all help to keep their teeth healthy and their diet as balanced as possible. Which will you be trying first?

Making healthy food for children is a real hurdle for mothers and in school holidays it becomes harder. However, it is important to have nutritious food at any age to keep thyself fit and since I have to do my thesis for me on the food habit of children I study a lot about its necessity.
